Detailed Description

Abstract base class for legend widgets.

Legends, that need to be under control of the QwtPlot layout system need to be derived from QwtAbstractLegend.

Note:

Other type of legends can be implemented by connecting to the QwtPlot::legendDataChanged() signal. But as these legends are unknown to the plot layout system the layout code ( on screen and for QwtPlotRenderer ) need to be organized in application code.
